magazine editor anna wintour oz our next u.s -- as our next u.s. ambassador to the u.k. or maybe to france. white house with press secretary jay carney defended the idea, insisting that nondiplomats like ms. wintour can make good envoys. >> what qualities does the president look for when he's going to pick an ambassador? an important ally like france or the u.k.? >> you know, i think that the president in all of his personnel appointments looks for talent, wisdom and character in his appointees, and he would do that regardless of the position. >> is it important for a diplomat to be diplomatic?

and israelis are worried as well. cooperation from france and britain, other nato countries as well, we have clearly been planning for contingency operations. it may be that whatever it is that the administration has uncovered about what assad is doing with his chemical weapons stockpiles, a decision has to be made. i don't think we should wait until assad starts using them. we have to do something to prevent the use. because if he unleashes chemical weapons against the opposition, and he eventually falls, the prospect of an opposition bloodbath, which are already very high, i think it becomes overwhelming. megyn: before i let you go, just to reiterate, you don't think that bashar al-assad is incapable of this? when i speak of the torture -- we have seen the bodies lined up, people with their arms tied behind their back, murdered in cold blood -- children, 9-year-olds being shot in the head. as their parents watch. other children made to watch as their parents are murdered in front of them -- babies -- reports go on and on. too gruesome for 1:00 p.m. eastern time. they're just so our viewers
